He suffered the injury immediately before the North Florida game and was seen wearing a protective boot, one he is still wearing. Hamilton has not given an anticipated return date for Miller, only that it would be seven to 10 days for it to heal.
He is the second leading scorer returning from last year, when he shot nearly 40% from the field and 35.4% from three point range. Prior to his injury, he was scoring 8.8 points and 3.5 assists per game. Since then he's slipped to 4.0 points per game and 1.3 assists per game, with a shooting percentage of 35.6% and 31.8% from the three point range.
Miller's injury will leave room for other FSU guards, like sophomore Terry Whisnant and freshman Aaron Thomas, to play. Miller's defense will be missed, along with his ball-handling. The junior may not have the instincts of a guard, but he has excellent vision and an ability to break down defenses.
This news comes at a poor time for FSU, who is currently 4-4. They will have to step up without Miller in order to extend their NCAA Tournament streak to five in March.
